Come Hear NC On Songs We Love: Tift Merritt

We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. This week we've got MC Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger telling us about why he loves 'Traveling Alone' by Tift Merritt - the title track from her 2012 record.

"When I hear that song, I hear a song about the loneliness of being an artist."
